This 1,400 m3 water tower is designed like a building in order for it to blend in with the urban context due to be built around it. A sustainable design, it doesn’t use a pump and its maintenance is kept to a bare minimum by the use of raw concrete, galvanised steel and a flower meadow. It’s height and lowest point are determined by the water pressure of the network that fills it, and by the effect of gravity used to empty it without losing any pressure. This system also allows water distribution to continue when electricity is cut. It is only lit up for visibility at dawn.
